end of october




featured in issue 25 of Digital Artist Magazine~

and now I've finished that piece I've been working on in the past few entries!

Last week I completed a quick drawing of Alessi's Ark for my label love

Other exciting news, after how awful last Winter was I decided this time to buy a daylight lamp - what a difference it makes! This makes working so much easier now by not having to depend on the Scottish weather's mood ^^

vintage

Last week my sister and I looked through a box of old photos, there were lots of pretty pictures of my mother so I'll be uploading some of them in the near future. Here are a couple of my favourites ~ so stylish!





And I've been working on that WIP I posted before along with plenty of dolly commissions, the idea has changed since last time - there will be no plants or insects, but there will be another type of flying creature ^^






My Cocteau Twins postcard collection is coming along nicely~ now I need to find some wall space!

September's custom work

I repainted the Minifee Woosoo I used for the shadow faceup, her face was calling to me for a new look!
I also opened the eyes & reshaped the mouth





I will be selling this head soon~

And now here is my new tower of organisation!
Lots of doll heads incoming so the empty drawers will soon be filled ^^


I like to have a nice clean space on my desk before I start work, so this keeps all the bits and pieces stored away underneath for easy access.

shadows

This August was the DoA doll community's 7th anniversary, and like the last two years there were a series of contests held for different skills.
I entered the faceup contest on the theme of 'shadows' and my piece was voted first place!






I tried to incorporate my illustration style of work into it, and used pencils to sketch in the shadows like I would on a drawing.
